On something of a roll this week, LG on Tuesday also announced local availability of its new budget mid-range contender in the Q60.
The phone, which was also announced in February, is a “showcase premium features, advanced technologies, and stylish design — all without breaking the bank” LG stated in a press release sent to Memeburn.
Up front, the Q60 features a 6.26-inch display with 1520×720 resolution. There’s a single 13MP selfie camera above it too housed in a water drop-shaped notch.
Beneath the skin, the phone is powered by the Mediatek Helio P22 chipset, featuring eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 2.0GHz. Alongside that, you’ll get 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot.
Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery. Charging and data port duties are perfomed by a dated microUSB port.
At the rear, LG is employing a triple camera setup, including a 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, a 5MP ultrawide camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor.
A 3.5mm headphone jack, rear fingerprint sensor, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE support.
It will come with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
The LG Q60 is available at the time of writing for South Africans at a price of R3699. It’s available in Moroccan Blue.
